for all the seafood lovers....I stumbled upon new restaurant today JR Bistro in Chinatown. They're running a special - fresh lobster, cooked to order for only $9.99 each. Thats cheaper than buying it at the 99Ranch and cooking it myself! i ordered it Black Bean and Chili style - not very spicy and complemented the lobster meat well. I mixed the lobster sauce into the rice and that was delightful. My friend ordered the crab which was also their special for 7.99 each. There are restrictions though - dine in only. it also says "limited time only" so ill be goin back very soon before they end this special promo. i recommend ordering the veggie eggrolls as appetizers.
the complimentary dessert is also worth mentioning. its a mango + pineapple/tropical tasting tapioca dessert that was most refreshing for the summer evenings these days.
